We want to hear your views on climate action in Lambeth. Please share your concerns and ideas by answering our questions on the Commonplace website. The consultation runs from 23 July to 4 December 2020. Have your say now and encourage others to take part.
Climate change has become a climate crisis. We have a huge task ahead of us. Homes, transport, businesses and other institutions across Lambeth produced over 900 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide in 2018. We need to reduce this significantly if we are to play our part in avoiding catastrophic rises in global temperatures.
We also need to make sure all of Lambeth's communities can adapt to the impacts of climate change, including increased risk of flooding, heatwaves and air pollution. That's why, as one part of our local fight against climate change, we’re launching the Lambeth Climate Action website.
We want to get Lambeth talking about the urgent crisis we are facing, the impacts it will have on our borough and communities, the inspiring local solutions that exist already, and ideas for a greener, fairer economy. This website is an opportunity to contribute to the evidence base and ideas that will be considered by the citizens' assembly and in the development of Lambeth's borough-wide climate action plan. It's also a chance to find out more about the amazing climate action already taking place in Lambeth, and suggest ways we can all work together to maximise our impact.
